More Info

Tasting Notes: Medium ruby red colour with a pure nose of ripe dark fruits, cherry, plum and sweet spices like ginger and aniseed supported with discreet oak. The palate is round and textured with a well balanced freshness, ending with a long and broad spicy finish.

Winemaking is carried out at a temperature of 25° C, macerating for a week, before ageing for a minimum of 6 months in big Slavonian oak casks.  The Primitivo vines average 15 to 25 years old and are trained in the native alberello (bush vine) system and espallier. Harvested in early September the average yield is approximately 90 quintals per hectare.

In the heel of Italy, Manduria is considered the birth place of the native Primitivo grape, and was officially recognised as such in the 1970s when a DOC was created for the region. However Produttori di Manduria had been making wines for 40 years by then, unashamedly proud of their deep affection for Primitivo.
